Why this piece is awesome: I just really like this imagining of Snape as a youth, and it's great to see Alan Rickman in his gorgeous days as well. Nice sepia colouring, too.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have NO volunteer reccers who signed up for April.

So it would of course be awesome if we had some recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for May either, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for April, May or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of March. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Why this piece is awesome: This is Snape (Rickman) tribute month, but I couldn't resist this one as it's such a wonderful ensemble piece, enormously atmospheric with the glowing light and deep shadows. I love the way Snape's glaring suspiciously at the viewer, a bit on the outs, and Crookshanks, and Kreacher, and just everyone! They're all so recognisable, and the dark old furniture is excellent. Really great!

Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

Why this piece is awesome: I love the duality of this work. The way it uses inside and outside, Earth and space, night and approaching dawn, Heero and his reflection connected through the palm of his hand in the centre of the picture. It's quiet and thoughtful and lovely.
